ESRI GlobeControl

Description

The GlobeControl encapsulates the GlobeViewer class and provides additional properties, methods and events for: managing the general appearance; loading globe documents into the control; managing the globe, globe display and globe camera properties, and setting the current tool.

Remarks

There is no need to declare the GlobeControl's outbound interface as described below in most development environments, because the interface is automaticlly implemented.

The MouseIcon property provides a custom icon that is used when the MousePointer property is set to esriPointerArrowHourglass (99).

Remarks

In most development evironments the control's property pages can be used to load either a cursor (.cur) or icon (.ico) file. A cursor contains a custom 'hotspot' location and can be any size. The 'hotspot' location for an icon file defaults to the center of the icon. This property cannot be used to load animated cursor (.ani) files.

                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
Current active tool for the GlobeControl. Set to nothing to clear the tool.

Description

The CurrentTool is the tool used to interact will the GlobeControl's display. Always check if a tool is enabled before setting it to the CurrentTool property, otherwise a user will be able to use a tool that is actually disabled.

Remarks

When the CurrentTool is set the following events occur:

  1. The ITool::Deactivate event is triggered on the 'old' CurrentTool if one was set. If this event returns false a trappable error ocurrs. If this event returns true the 'old' CurrentTool is removed and replaced.
  2. The ICommand::OnClick event is triggered on the 'new' CurrentTool and its cursor is picked up.

Within an ITool implementation it is recommended that the ITool::Deactivate event returns true. This allows a 'new' CurrentTool to be set, and allows the release of the CurrentTool when an application is shutting down.

Remarks

When the Navigate property is set to true, the OnMouseDown, OnMouseMove, OnMouseUp events are being intercepted. As such, care must be taken by developers to avoid the display becoming confused when:

                                   AutomationException
The TOCControl calls this method to instruct the buddy that layer visibility has changed.

Description

The LayerVisibilityChanged method is called when the visibility of a layer is changed interactively using the TOCControl.

If a layer (typically a raster layer) within a Globe is fully cached the original data source does not need to be present in order for the layer to display. To ensure that the TOCControl changes the visibility of a cached layer the LayerVisibilityChanged method ensures the Globe changes the GlobeLayerProperties.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine.

Specified by:
layerVisibilityChanged in interface ITOCBuddy2
Parameters:

                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
The TOCControl calls this method to ask the buddy if a layer is fully cached and valid if it cannot determine this on its own.

Description

The IsLayerValid method returns whether the specified layer is fullly cached and so valid, even if the connection to the layers data source is broken.

If a layer (typically a raster layer) within a GlobeControl is fully cached the original data source does not need to be present in order for the layer to display. To ensure that the TOCControl does not display this layer as broken (with a red exclamation symbol !), the IsLayerValid method additionally checks if layer is fully cached.

                                     AutomationException
The TOCControl calls this method to ask the buddy if a layer is visible at the specified scale.

Description

The IsLayerVisibleAtScale method, called by the TOCControl, returns whether the specified layer is visible at the specified scale.

A layer in a globe has IGlobeLayerProperties::MinimumDistance and IGlobeLayerProperties::MaximumDistance properties. The IsLayerVisibleAtScale method allows the GlobeControl to override the ILayer::MinimumScale and ILayer::MaximumScale properties with the MinimumDistance and MaximumDistance properties to correctly manage the visibility of the layer.
